Turkey Pot Pie


Turkey Pot Pie


  • 3 Tbsp. butter, plus more for greasing baking dish
  • 1 med. onion, finely diced
  • 2 med. carrots, peeled and med. diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 1 1/3 cups heavy cream, plus 2 tablespoons for brushing
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded turkey meat
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas
  • 3 Tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
  • 3 sprigs thyme, stems removed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 unbaked pie crusts
  • 1 Tbsp. flaky sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large, deep-sided skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onions and carrots and cook until softened, 5 minutes. Add garlic, and then stir in flour and cook until golden and beginning to bubble.
  3. Gradually whisk in white wine. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook until the smell of alcohol is cooked out, about 3 minutes.
  4. Slowly stream in heavy cream and continue to cook, stirring until mixture comes to a boil and thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.
  5. Fold in shredded turkey, peas, parsley and thyme. Season mixture with salt and pepper. Let cool until ready to assemble.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, roll one crust into a large round about ¼” thick. Place into a greased, shallow 9″ pie dish or deep skillet, trim edges to leave a 1″ overhang and then add cooled filling.
  7. Roll out the second crust into a large round about ¼” thick and place on top of filling. Trim and crimp edges, and then use a paring knife to create slits on top. Brush with remaining heavy cream and sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
  8. Bake pie until crust is golden and filling is bubbling, about 1 hour 15 minutes. If the edges of the pie start to darken faster than the rest of the pie, cover edges with foil.
  9. Cool 15 minutes before serving.
